Located inside the luxury Rosewood Hotel Georgia Vancouver, Hawksworth opened its door in June this year. My friend and I decided to celebrate our joined birthday at Hawksworth. The restaurant is divided into three sections: a bar section and two dining areas. Once you stepped into the dining area, you will instantly notice the focal point of the dining room: an enormous and dazzling oval chandelier. They also have a visually striking glass-enclosed wine room located between the dining room and the kitchen.
Aside from the elegant ambiance, Hawksworth offered both regular menu and a 5-course tasting menu ($75). Our server introduced us to the daily specials and she also told us that we could also order any dishes from the tasting menu individually.We ordered the seared qualicum bay scallops and the yellowfin tuna carpaccio for appetizer. The seared qualicum bay scallops came with kimchi cous cous which I found really interesting . I like the chef's take on Asian ingredients. Although the seared scallops had a nice combination of spice, acid, and texture, the overall taste was pretty subtle. I found that it was missing an extra punch in flavor.
